3 essential adulting things to learn

Adulting is so boring sometimes but, I’ll let you into a secret, it actually feels so good when you understand how to do something super adult-y. I’m talking the boring shit that your mum or dad always used (and still sometimes do) for you. Here are three adulting nightmares that we’ve overcome in the past year or so that I thought I’d offer some boring (but helpful) tips on. =&0=& Utilities are the one thing that no one wants to pay for, right? It’s so annoying. But, it’s even more annoying when you overspend on these things and don’t know how to save money. We learned the hard way and now we know exactly how to use our water heating without using the ‘boost’ button that costs loads of money! Yay. Some home shit that I’d massively recommend learning about is storage heaters if you live in a flat. These can rinse your money SO BADLY. We got a nasty surprise with our electric because we didn’t know how to use them properly so it feels awesome going into winter actually knowing what we’re doing now. Top tip:  Ask your landlord or estate agency people for all of the info on your boiler, your heating appliances and everything else that you might not know exactly how to use before you get a nasty bill. =&1=& Spending money on car stuff is the worst and remembering when to do it is even more annoying but it’s easier to get stuff sorted and spend £100 than to be stuck on a country road broken down when it’s raining. Check your brakes, change your tyres when you need to, get your service done like your dad always tells you too and don’t forget about your MOT because you could get in trouble for not having one if you get into an accident or anything. Top tip:=&2=&

5 things on my September wish list

As if it’s September? It’s basically autumn and summer is well and truly behind us. Well, I hope the weather realises so anyway because I always get so confused this time of year about what to wear. The day will start out freezing and you’ll be sweating by lunchtime. Nightmare. Anyway, seeing as it’s a whole new month I thought I’d share some items I’m lusting over for the new season.

There are so many things I love when it comes to interiors, decor and home ware in general. One of the things that tends to catch my eye the most though is flooring, which I believe is the very foundation to any house (literally!).

With that in mind I have decided to chat about a couple of my fave floors with you, some old, some new but all just lovely!

How To Still Have Garden Life In The City

City living is great for a lot of reasons. I know I love it compared to small town life. Most cities are exciting places to be. You can pop out for a coffee, or a meal, whenever you fancy. You never have to miss out because the bus times were wrong, or you had no way of getting there. Plus points aside (and, honestly, there are a lot of them!) there are some not so great things. Sometimes, city living can get on top of you. We all need peace and quiet sometimes. And, something that’s a particular problem when the sun starts shining; outside space can be hard to come by. I know this at the moment, especially as sometimes when the sun comes out I miss my garden!

In reality, though, this part of the home should be updated every few years at least. So if your bathroom has gone a long time without receiving the affection it deserves, now’s the time to make a change!

Interiors: How To Have Fun With Monochrome

I haven’t written an interiors related post for a while! I wrote about tropical trends at Victoria Retail Park, Scandi bedroom inspo and bathroom storage tips this year though if you fancy a read. I may not write about interiors weekly as I might do food or fashion but it’s definitely still something that I think about on a daily basis. Usually, it’s just pinning on Pinterest or liking some of my favourite house-related Instagram accounts, but I love interiors!
